The Charitable Trust Section functions for Michigan citizens as a repository of financial and other information about charities they may want to support.
At any one time there are more than 8,000 charities registered with the Attorney General's Charitable Trust Section. Most charities soliciting contributions in Michigan are required to register with the Charitable Trust Section.
One of the goals of the Attorney General is to help educate the public and to assist them in making wise choices about what charities to support.Charitable Trust Responsibilities
